SOURCE: Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV

The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.

SOURCE: Normal Picture Mode Not Available With Cox HD-DVR (Motorola DCH3416) and HDMI Cable

With an HDMI cable connected, the cable box determines the picture size. The settings on the cable box must be changed in order for you to get the correct picture size. I have some experience with Motorola cable boxes; usually to access the settings you turn the box OFF and then press the menu or settings button on the box to bring up the display menu. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: picture size exceeds TV screen

If you are also using a Cable Box, make sure that the zoom selection, (Format) ,on the Cable Box remote is set properly. Especially if the TV Remotes Aspect Ratio is set to a Wide Format.
Hope this helps,

Sony kdl 32w4000. Works ok for 10-15mins, then there's a buzz through the speakers and it switches off with the standby light flashing 8 times


Please try this TV on an alternative power source. It sounds like it is getting either too much or inconsistent power from the plug it is plugged into. I recommend trying a completely different wall, as often times one wall with multiple plugs will be on the same circuit.

Good Luck.

Bravia Z-Series KDL-40Z4100/B 40-Inch 1080pBecause if you connect this to your in home network you can stream music videos and music off you PC onto your TV without the need for extra wired or memory cards etc.

Otherwise if you don't need this feature the other options are identical on the other TV so it is just as good a choice.

Bravia & Sky+HD, aspect problem


There is nothing wrong with you Sony Bravia TV and it suppport all HD and SD formats.

Are you viewing the HD version of the channel when it is showing a standard defination show. e.g SKY1 HD instead of SKY1.

This means that regular standard defination shows are in a 4:3 ratio and does not fill the whole screen. In order to view these type of shows you will need to tune to regular channel instead of the HD version.

You can check if a show is brocast in HD by going into the tv guide and checking for the HD symbol in the programme symposis.

Sony Bravia - picture don't fit the screen


I have a Scientific Atlanta cable box w/ Time Warner. I followed the instructions below for the cable box. Somehow it reset my picture and I can now read the ticker at the bottom of the screen and the different picture sizes seem to work properly. Good Luck.
